Don't think so
by: Gary Wolff

Mac, as one who has scaled 38 of Japan's 50 highest peaks, I would IMHO discourage anyone from attempting to climb Mt. Shirouma-dake in mid-November for a number of reasons...

...including dangerous heavy snowfalls that already begin in Japan's alpine country in early October, both of ​the mountain huts near the Shirouma-dake summit close in mid-October, and you’ll have to cross the Daisekkei (Great Snow Valley) which as a minimum require crampons and has claimed many lives (*) through the years, making it one of the most treacherous climbing sections in all of Japan.

I suggest trying again next year during the recommended climbing season. Happy trails and thanks for visiting my site…
